SOF Selection PT Preparation 7.5.2017
We hope everyone enjoyed their Independence Day holiday, but in prepping for Special Operations there are no days off. So it is Shoulders and back day in the gym before heading off to do the SOF (Special Operations Forces) Triathlon. A run, a rucksack march, and a swim with fatigues and boots. If you can do all three of these things well, you will have the inside track for most of the Selection courses.

3 x 12 Lat Pulldowns, behind the neck (go as heavy as possible)
3 x 12 Lat Pulldowns, front
3 x 10 Dumbbell Side Raises

3 x 8 Shoulder Shrugs
